It is crafted from vines around 30 years of age, grown in sandy soils at an altitude of 400 metres above sea level.
Harvested by hand and carefully selected, once in the cellar the grapes were cold-soaked prior to alcoholic fermentation. Then this red wine from Méntrida was fermented in stainless steel tanks. After that, it was transferred into 50% new and 50% 2nd year 500-litre French oak barrels.
Finally, Malpaso 2017 completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 12 months. It was not filtered or clarified prior to its bottling.
17,000 bottles produced.
The wine Malpaso has an intense, clean, bright cherry-coloured robe with a bluish rim.
This varietal Syrah shows has a very defined character. Black fruit, aromatic herbs, clove, pepper, a dash of chocolate, black olives, wet earth and some mineral remembrances.
Fresh, gentle and well-structured, this Méntrida red wine of Bodegas Canopy has some ripe tannins and a good acidity. Ripe mulberries, laurel, some smokey nuances, black pepper and undergrowth. Long, delicately sweet finish.
|Our personal opinion||
Succulent and nuanced, Malpaso 2017 is an utterly enjoyable Crianza red wine from central Spain.
